I love mine

Pros: Cooks great, heavy duty

Cons: Firebox ashtray

First off, I love this smoker, it has a few flaws but it is rock solid and cooks great once you learn how to use it. My biggest problem at this time is finding any place out there that has mod parts for it and/or replacement parts. The firebox has this rickety tray under it for the ashes and it rusted completely out a couple of years back, I would love to find another one, but will be OK with just welding it up and calling it good too. Things I am looking for include a good quality smoke diverter for the cooking chamber and possibly a kit to re route the exhaust over to the other side to make it a reverse flow without having to cut a new smoke stack mount hole in it. Does anyone out there...

Looking for a New Braunfels Longhorn Deluxe

Posted
I've owned 3 New Braunfels, still have 2 of them, and continually search for them, restore them, and then pass them along to friends as gifts.    Now looking for the Longhorn Deluxe, don't know where to start.

Love this smoker

Pros: Has lots of space for your meat, and has very good heat control

Cons: The steal in the fire box is not made to last.

I have had three New Braunfels smokers. The only problems I have had with them is the fire box rusts out after about two years. This time I have reinforced the firs box with more steal to make it last longer.
